How did you deal with challenges while starting out?
I started fashion designing in 2009; it has been a great learning process. It has been my dream as a child to be a fashion designer. I have been so convinced about what I wanted to do with my life and when the opportunity came in 2009, I grabbed it! Since then my life was defined. Trust me when I tell you it has never been easy being an entrepreneur, the sleepless nights, the sacrifices, sometimes you are rich and sometimes you are very rich, clients’ management, business management, staff management, growth, expansion, funds, and a lot of factors.
Who are your role models?
